Dr. Brent Harlan

Dr. Brent Harlan - New Directions Counseling Psychiatrist

Dr. Brent Harlan is a board certified general psychiatrist who provides care to adult individuals.  He takes an active approach in the care of his clients, focusing not only on pharmacological solutions to improve outcomes, but also behaviors that can positively and negatively impact successful care.  Dr. Harlan encourages patients to avoid complacency; he challenges patients to be the best they can be and focus on the things in their lives that they can control.  While Dr. Harlan is concerned with pharmacological solutions, he recognizes the challenges of compliance, mental health stigma, and medication side effects.  His approachable style is paramount in helping patients feel comfortable sharing any concerns they have about recommended or current treatments.  He specializes in managing anxiety conditions as well depression, bipolar, substance use, ADHD, and schizophrenia.

Dr. Harlan is currently accepting new patients. He accepts Highmark insurance and all major forms of insurance in the near future. Please contact the practice at 724-934-3905 to schedule an appointment.
